What we will do
  • Our coach tour begins with a trip through the town of Honningsvåg which contests the title of the northernmost town in the world with Hammerfest and then continues along the Skips Fjord, a splendid fjord sprinkled with colourful cottages, hotels and camp sites
  • We continue to Kamøyvær, the tiniest fishing village on the island of Magerøya with barely 100 residents.
  • The village lies in a sheltered position and consists of bungalows and cottages painted in pastel shades. It boasts a fish processing factory, a small fleet of fishing boats, a lighthouse and a tiny, picturesque harbour.
  • Before we continue our tour, we’ll have a brief photographic stop.
  • We’ll also stop for a cultural visit to the Gallery East of the Sun which exhibits works of art and craft, and brightly painted canvases by the artists Eva Eva Schmutterer**, who loves to guide people personally around her exhibition and workshop.
  • Among the works on show are some exotic pictures made with fish bones, jewels made of stone and glass and tiny models of reindeer all handmade.
  • Back on the main road, we continue northwards towards Skarsvåg-krysset, only to leave it once again to reach the tiny fishing village of Skarsvåg, about 14 km from North Cape.
  • We’ll stop at the panoramic viewpoint from where we can see North Cape Horn, a rocky formation once used as a place of worship for Sami sacrifices.
  • We’ll stop in Skarsvåg, to visit the North Cape Christmas and Winter House**. We can immerse ourselves in the typical winter, Christmas atmosphere of northern Norway as the house is decorated with Christmas decorations. And that’s not all: you’ll be able to buy glasses, ceramics, postcards, photos and knitwear.
